Pictures Sent in by a Dinosaur Model Fan

It never ceases to amaze us how clever and creative Everything Dinosaur’s customers are.  We get lots of photographs sent into our offices by collectors and fans of prehistoric animal models showcasing their collections and dinosaur themed dioramas.  Take for example, these pictures sent into us by Luke, after he recently received the rare Kaiyodo Sofubi Toy Box T. rex figure from us.

Dinosaur Dioramas

Lots of collectors like to build their own prehistoric scenes and the Kaiyodo Sofubi Toy Box T. rex looks very much at home against a background of tropical vegetation.  The smoke green colour variant looks quite well camouflaged against this backdrop.  Luke must have quite a sizeable model and figure collection as he included a couple of pictures of this rare Tyrannosaurus rex figure being displayed next to other dinosaurs from his collection.

The Papo figure (left) is the colour variant version of the Running Tyrannosaurus rex figure, that was introduced in 2016.  In the photograph sent into Everything Dinosaur’s offices by Luke, it is compared to the Kaiyodo Sofubi Toy Box T. rex figure (left).  The pair of models are quite well-matched, although with ten articulated joints the Kaiyodo figure has many more areas of articulation than the Papo model.  The Papo Tyrannosaurus rex has only one area of movement – an articulated lower jaw.

A Visit to Skull Island

Luke dropped a line to Everything Dinosaur stating:

“Hi guys.  Just wanted to put finger to keyboard to say a massive thank you for the Kaiyodo Sofubi smoke green T. rex which I have just received.  The model itself is absolutely superb and I have sent some pics.  Also, to say thank you I’m also sent a little recreation of an iconic scene from a certain classic 1930’s movie.  Once again I cannot thank you guys enough and look forward to ordering from you again.  Kindest regards.”

The movie Luke is referring to is the famous film “King Kong” that was released in 1933 and stars Fray Wray, Bruce Cabot and of course, a stop motion giant ape that was animated by Willis O’Brien.  Skull Island, Kong’s home has also a number of dinosaurs in residence, including fearsome meat-eaters.  In one classic scene, Kong battles a dinosaur.

Our thanks to Luke for taking the time and trouble to send to us these fabulous photographs and we really appreciate the careful way in which he has arranged these shots.  We spotted the Safari Ltd Prehistoric World tree fern and a base from the Rebor Ceratosaurus replica “Savage” that had also been incorporated into the diorama.  The Kaiyodo Sofubi Toy Box T. rex is fantastic piece of dinosaur figure design and with all its points of articulation collectors can create all sorts of action poses.  Thanks Luke for sharing these wonderful pictures.
